Music publisher, Schott Music GmbH has announced the release of Schott Pluscore Sing-Along 1.0, its new voice trainer app for Apple iPad. This unique app with adaptable accompaniments is the ideal trainer for rehearsing opera arias and other repetoire.
Pluscore Sing-Along offers sheet music that can be set to the individual needs of the singer and includes an audio version. Users may add page breaks, select a zoom factor or transpose the music to another key. The audio version allows singers to hear the piece and it provides an adaptable accompaniment.
The integrated MIDI Studio as well as the so called Virtual Conductor enables the user to adjust the accompaniment to his/her own interpretation. The singer can set the tempo and change the volume. When making use of the Virtual Conductor the singer may conduct his/her own accompaniment and use this version while practicing afterwards. Singers also have the option of listening to the voice part separately or of recording their own voice.
The app offers opera arias for soprano, mezzo-soprano, tenor, baritone and bass. The repertoire includes arias by composers such as Verdi, Donizetti, Bizet or Wagner. New sheet music will be added to Schott Pluscore Sing-Along on a regular basis. The app is free of charge. The sheet music has to be purchased via ‘In-App Purchase’ in the integrated Schott Store.
